    Ones a politician, the other, a dreamer.
    Have any of Paul's ideas worked or been effective in any other nation similar to ours?
    I think that his philosophy may work in the future when man becomes civilized.

    The odds of Paul getting the nomination of the republican party is next to zero. The odds of Paul winning as a Libertarian or independent candidate, even smaller.

    Re: Ron Paul vs Barack Obama

    Well, if he ends up in office, then he will have to leave his libeterian policies, because they won't get through congress and won't be popular among ordinary people. However, I could imagine Ron Paul would do a lot more about the national debt than Obama does at the moment who is spending much more than Bush did. Right now, I think the national debt is the biggest problem.

    There is a fundamental conflict with reducing the debt and keeping policies that the general population likes.

    So should we just spend ourself into Oblivion then?

    I mean, either you need to increase taxes which will remove the US advantage of beeing a low tax economy. It's also going to be a terrible left wing country. Or you reduce spending so that the country keeps its advantage, but keeps the debt down.

    I did not make a recommendation either way. I was pointing out that one cannot both reduce spending to necessary levels and remain popular. Personally I think we are going to have to reduce spending to sustainable levels whether we like it or not.

    I don't like the consequences of either option, but I think we have to either pick one or another. Either way, the older generation has pretty much screwed mine with their greed and short sightedness.

    How can there be a "neither" choice if only two are running?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
